    Exclamation Code is giving an error in console, but there are no errors apparent in the code!

    Basically, I am trying to drawString and I am getting some unexplained errors. Eclipse isn't redlining anything, but when I run the application, it gives an error and refuses to draw the test. Here is my source code:

    MainGameClass:

    public class MainGameClass {
     
    	//Accesses the ScreenHandler class and makes it use 'sh' variable
    	static ScreenHandler sh = new ScreenHandler();
     
    	//Main thingy (duh)
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
     
    		//Makes ScreenHandler class activate DrawWindow method
    		sh.DrawWindow();
    		sh.PaintWindowText(null);
     
    	}
     
    }

    ScreenHandler

    import java.awt.BorderLayout;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Dimension;
    import java.awt.Font;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Graphics2D;
     
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JLabel;
     
    //Referenced by MainGameClass
     
    public class ScreenHandler {
     
    	//Draws the window the game is in
    	JFrame frame = new JFrame("Indev v0.01");
     
    	public void DrawWindow(){
    		//Initiates window drawing
    		frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
     
    		JLabel emptyLabel = new JLabel("");
    		//Makes it 800 by 600
    		emptyLabel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(1000, 600));
    		frame.getContentPane().add(emptyLabel, BorderLayout.CENTER);
     
    		frame.pack();
    		//Makes it visible
    		frame.setVisible(true);
     
    		//Activates the PaintWindow function below
    		PaintWindowColor();
     
    	}
    	public void PaintWindowColor(){
     
    		//Sets the background color to blue
    		//frame.getContentPane().setBackground(Color.BLUE);
    	}
    	public void PaintWindowText(Graphics g){
     
    		if(g instanceof Graphics2D){
     
    		}
    		try{
    		g.drawString("Did this work?", 200, 200);
    		} catch (Exception ex)
    		{
    			ex.printStackTrace();
    		}
    		//Makes a new JLabel with text in it
    		//JLabel label = new JLabel("Did this work?");
     
    		//Sets the font to plain
    		//label.setFont(new Font("Sans-Serif",Font.PLAIN,140));
     
    		//Adds the text label to the screen
    		//frame.add(label);
    	}
    }

    I hope you can help, as any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
